I have had a couple new idea’s for the shop and things I want for me or I should say the family. So I went fabric shopping! I knew that fabric was going to be delivered yesterday. We had been out of town for the weekend (which was a whole other story) and was excited to come home to it. I was sad when I got home and I didn’t see my box. Then I noticed that the UPS delivery person hid my box behind a bush. Well played UPS!
I resisted the urge to open the box that night because I was tired and feeling crappy. I also resisted the urge to open it in the morning. I waited until nap time. I do have will power! It just hides when cupcakes are near. (Side note… I had amazing cupcakes this weekend! My Mum’s friend makes cakes and she whipped up some cupcakes for us and they were fabulous!)
SO I wait until naptime and open the box and my heart sinks. “WHAT DID I DO!?!?!?”
**** Please excuse the wrinkly background. Need to iron. Who has time to iron?*****
I don’t remember ordering this. I quickly searched the packing list and breath a sigh of relief. I didn’t order this. I have nothing against this fabric. It’s pretty. It’s a canvasy material. I’m sure it would be perfect for a project of some sort. I just didn’t order it. Then I take a look at the box.
These lovely circles are made of flannel. I LOVE FLANNEL! I’m running low on flannel wash cloths for the shop and these were a steal of a deal. These are designed by Valori Wells (who I love!) for Free Spirit.
The next thing in the box was this collection! I’m soooooooooo excited by these prints!
Be excited, very excited to see what I’m doing with these. It isn’t earth shattering or anything but I’m excited so you should be too! I think if I could afford it I would buy a bolt of each of these fabrics. I could decorate a room based on these fabrics. I already want more!
Deep down I’m a hippie. I really would like to say everything in my house is eco friendly, recycled, uber crunchy you get the point. The thing is it’s expensive and time consuming. So anyway. I have been trying to get more and more organic stuff into the shop (which has nothing right now). So I got these!
Organic wrinkly Jersey! It’s not really wrinkly just wrinkled from being shipped crunched up. It just needs to be ironed. I hate ironing. I have many plans for you! Or maybe just one plan but it is a decent one.
So here is where my order goes off track again…..
I don’t know many things but I do know those aren’t dots, or red. Can I say after 3 tries, a couple of phone calls that I have determined that Riley Blake’s Medium Dots in Red are a figment of my imagination (with a quote from Chasing Amy floating in my head but it is not appropriate for all audiences, specifically my Mum). This is stemming from my last fabric mail post . So we will try again!
Lastly we have this piece.
I feel like I just need to say that I love fabric.com. They have great prices. They have usually an amazing selection if you get there first because the good stuff sells out quick! AND they have amazing customer service. Every time I call with an issue with an order they make it all better. I hardly ever have a problem with my orders and this order seems to be a one off of mistakes. I called and was only on hold for a short time. I told them what was wrong and with no questions asked the right things are being sent to me. As for the Riley Blake dots that has been a series of errors but I’m positive it will all be good in the end.
